* AlternateHistory: A [[PlayingWithATrope pseudo-version of this]] is is used in the novel ''Century Rain'', with Earth-Two, an exact copy of planet Earth in a different part of the Galaxy, on which the only difference is a 1940s-50s level of society and technology and the non-existance of UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (it ''started'', but the Nazi offensive bogged down in the Ardennes, bringing an early end to the conflict, with far-from-happy consequences). It is later revealed to be [[spoiler: one of many 'quantum snapshots' of Earth at different time periods, all done by a mysterious missing alien race.]]

'''Alastair Reynolds''' is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welsh]] author of a number of science fiction novels and short stories. He's a former physicist and astronomer for UsefulNotes/{{ESA}}, which he worked for during the 1990s and early 2000s, before becoming a full-time writer. Considering his scientific background, these works have the tendency to be about as far up MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness as it's possible to get while still remaining recognizably SpaceOpera. Of particular note is the almost total lack of FasterThanLightTravel in most of his books, despite their interstellar settings, and the extreme cultural and technological divergences shown. Reynolds is considered one of the main British examples of "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Space_Opera The New Space Opera]]" generation of SF writers, alongside Creator/PeterFHamilton and several others.
